FoIk inspired Auckland band alae (Mikee Carpinter & Matiu Sadd) are ready to take their emotive brand of soulful sound on the road once more with a headlining national New Zealand and Australian tour announced for this August and September.
Taking in some of the most intimate venues in the country, alae’s 6 date NZ tour will kick off in Christchurch and wind its way up to Auckland before the band head across the Tasman to play 4 key dates in Australia thanks to the assistance of an Outward Sound grant.
You can experience alae at the following venues:
Friday 18 August                   Christchurch @ Orange Studios
Saturday 19 August               Nelson @ Rhythm & Brown
Thursday 24 August              Wellington @ Caroline

Saturday 2 September          Auckland @ Golden Dawn
Tickets to the NZ shows are available now through and (Christchurch only).
With the Taite Music Prize acknowledgement in the Best Debut release category under their belt and continued support from NZ on Air, it’s fair to say that the adoration for alae has truly ignited. Latest single Things Change has found a cozy home across commercial radio in NZ, with the video receiving over 150k plays through Facebook alone. Across the ditch, alae will play to Australian audiences for a second time where Things Change has further sparked the support of leading music sites and
Anticipation is running hot for next single “1 to 3” which releases in August and will be the second single from alae’s forthcoming debut album, due for release in March 2018.
Don’t miss your chance to see alae perform up close and personal in what promises to be a collection of very special gigs this spring.
